Blue Hues | A Color Story

I love the use of blue, especially blue and white in interior design, so I thought I'd pull together some inspiration via Pinterest, titled; Blue Hues.

As I was pulling all of these beautiful and inspiring examples together, I wondered, "Where did blue in design originate?" So I did a little web-reasearch and found that blue, specifically Indigo, is one of the world’s oldest dyes. Indigo is derived from a Greek term that means β€œfrom India." In ancient Egypt, the color blue was revered, and weavers inserted blue stripes in to the borders of linen mummy cloths. King Tut's funeral garb actually included a state robe that was predominately blue. The color blue symbolizes trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability and intelligence. Blue also communicates significance, importance, and confidence without feeling too somber.

I love the use of blue in decorate accents such as pillows, throws, rugs, florals and art. These things are much easier to change out if you decide to whereas, a couch is more of a commitment.

Below are some pieces that I'm in love with AND where to get them. I hope you love them as much as I do! Don't forget to check out my PINTEREST BOARD: BLUE HUES!
